Benold Middle School Mixed Choir performs at Georgetown TX Rotary
Members of the Benold Mixed Choir performed before an audience at a regular meeting of the Rotary Club of Georgetown TX.
Benold Mixed Choir was founded in 2017 as a top level group in 3 & 4-part harmony. Composed of 7th & 8th graders, these students sing a wide variety of music including a cappella, vocal jazz, pop, broadway and barbershop music. Performing a 4 concert season with Mixed Choir, these students are also enrolled in a second choir class at Benold.
Besides Mixed Choir, they are also performing with Tenor-Bass Choir or the Varsity Treble Choir. Every Spring, each of these choirs also competes at the state level in the UIL Concert & Sight Reading evaluation. In March at the UIL competition, the Tenor-Bass Choir earned Division 2 Excellent ratings in Sight Reading and Division 1 Superior ratings in Concert. For our Sopranos & Altos in the Varsity Treble Choir, they earned the Sweepstakes Award! This means that every judge in both the Concert & Sight Reading evaluation gave them Division 1 Superior ratings!
Over the past four years Benold Mixed Choir group has competed at the Capitol City Showcase in Cedar Park, earning such recognition as the "Stars to Watch" and "Audience Favorite." This summer, a new quartet of four 8th grade girls known as the "Showstoppers" will head to Dallas to compete in the Sweet Adelines International Rising Star Quartet competition.
